Its complex while at the same time the ideal companion for the great Sicilian tradition of sweets and ices.
Sicily is the land of sweet wines in all its quarters, with different styles and varieties. In the opinion of many people Moscato – or perhaps the ‘moscati’ – is the original grape, for others the Biblino from Syracuse, the first wine described in Sicily, was the father of the present Moscato Passito di Noto. This is an antique wine which has become modern, thanks to a new system of drying.
Planeta is the story of a journey through time and space, through Sicily from west to east, and through the five areas where today we produce their wines, olive oils and the places of our family hospitality. A long journey which was chosen in order to protect the uniqueness of the environment, the countryside and the culture with the same respect with which to explore the characteristics of the terroirs and the vineyards, enhancing the specific details of each area.
